Released last month, the Active Lives Children & Young People Survey has shown great improvements in activity levels for young people post-pandemic. Whilst activity levels have returned to pre-pandemic levels, the key statistics are not universal.
There are positive indications that Sport England and partner projects such as the Local Delivery Pilots have driven the progress. However, activity amongst black children, mainly boys remains low, alongside children aged 7 – 9.
The survey has continued to impress the positive association between activity levels and mental wellbeing. Active children and young people continue to experience higher levels of mental wellbeing, with physically literate children amongst those with the highest levels of consistent mental wellbeing.
